Insert appropriate Philly Sweep title here.

Really, is there anything better in late July than taking three at home versus the Phillies? I mean, this shirt has a wonderfully different meaning now...

At the game on Saturday, I told Kolbi, "If, heaven forbid, I die and come back as a Phillies fan, I want this shirt. ...That better not ever happen."

 

Seriously though, let's look at some of the news service pictures from the wonderful wins this weekend. There are a lot of great ones! Here we go!

I'm seriously upset I haven't seen Ben Sheets pitch in person yet. (I was at a party Friday night and didn't see the game at all.)

Uh, no, that's not Freddie. That's Ben Sheets. THE STARTING PITCHER. What is wrong with these people.

Love love love that he doesn't hide out downstairs after he comes out of the game. Team player.

Flattering photo of Cristhian. The news services almost never take pics of our relievers!

He has a Liberty Bell on his socks. Can we start putting things on Marteen's and Jonny's socks? Something quintessentially Atlanta, like the Varsity V? Or the Macy's Pink Pig? Or a bottle of Coca-Cola!

Asked a couple of friends who Kimmie looks like here - I was thinking a character from a kids movie? I think I've just decided he has the identical face of a little boy I babysit. :)

"It's gonna be sunny sky over the Turner Field today!"

Jane sent me this pic with the comment, "um beachy that facial hair. can we not." (I didn't even notice - too busy looking at Kimmeh and JJ and Mac yawning and Luis being a doll.)
